    had this for years on my 150, sounds crap but local fiat garage say fiat except this to be normal if it stops within a certain time (forgot time but think its under 2 mins), mine sounds ok most of the time when hot, car serviced regular with vx oil so think it maybe sticky lifter of marked cam, fiat said try additive like wynnes.

    Never had this with my 150 and it had done 134k! I changed the oil and filter today with Dexos2, so will see next cold start!

    The other issue is with a chatter when accelerating! only heard while foot on throttle, starting to think it might be an injector as some are reading close to the -3

    rpm 851

    Cyl 1 -0.58
    cyl 2 1.64
    cyl 3 -2.71
    cyl 4 1.66

    I know injector 3 was replaced by vauxhall 17k ago, not sure why?

    Cheers Ronnie
